So, who are the New Kids on the Block to watch out for then?

False Hare and the Young'Uns are the ones that have impressed me most over the last year.

False Hare need a Myspace page, Greg, if you should see them, unless of course, they already have one, but I can't find anything of their music on google...found this though...

Taken from here...

The Goose met Helen and Katie when they came to ask our advice about setting up a new folk club in Deptford (erm, yes, we did ask them if they had any idea what they were letting themselves in for!)

We went to their first night and when they got up to do a song together, we were blown away, particularly as they had modestly said to us that they were only doing it because it was traditional for folk club organisers to get up and sing (erm, yes, thanks for subtly pointing out that the Goose has not as yet adhered to this tradition .....)

Anyway, we basically said to them that if they could get a half-hour set together which was anything like as good as what we'd heard, we would be delighted to have them come and sing at DHFC, to which after a bit of shuffling they agreed.

Come and hear them - we're sure that if you like traditional unaccompanied folk you will be as blown away as we were!

On being asked for a brief biog, this is what they said: Helen was in a cool indie band for a while - Kate was in the school choir. On being pushed for more, it transpires that Helen was lead guitarist in an all girl punk band called Kamikaze Kitten...... who were pretty big on the Oxford music scene circa 1998.

Well, we were well impressed but somewhat bemused until we found out that Helen was about five at the time ..... well fourteen actually .....

And - False Hare? One of them is into wigs, the other one thinks if there isn't a traditional song about a false hare, there should be. Saying anything? No, not us. We're saying nothing about that photo, either.......




Wow!!! :0)

The Young Un's - Myspace... really good!

They're singing 'Santiana' at the moment (on their Myspace page) and I bet Johnny Collins is up there with a big smile on his lovely face, listening to the next generation...I LOVE them, Greg, they're fabulous! :0)

We had Tom & Gren at Raggalds and they were great!

Have you heard the Hall Brothers - not that young but really good. Also have a listen to Edwina Hayes, Lorelei Loveridge & One Stone.

For me the find of the year so far has to be the combination of
Coracle and James Findlay.
As individuals they are unselfconciously, incredibly talented; when occasionally combined, they are refreshingly wondefull.

Watch out for them.

False Hare are on MySpace as Kit and Cutter, but that's mostly about their folk club. They've only been singing for a few months, so I doubt they've recorded much yet.

Um, are the Askew sisters still young enough to count as "Young Folk"? I hope so!

Oh, and Tom Moore, certainly. A fine fiddle player, and holding his own at festival sessions a few years ago when he was only 8!

4square. A well-known folk luminary said they were bound to win the Young Folk Award.

They have deliberately chosen not to enter.

Wheeler Street! Really wonderful, John, thank you! :0)

Do they have any videos on Facebook? The one on their Myspace page is on Myspace itself, so I can't move it over to Facebook.

Interesting mention for Lorelei Loveridge above. She impressed at the Spring Off The Tracks festival in May and her latest album is good. You can see a review at http://www.tigerfolk.com/

Two more votes for False Hare. Keith and I heard Helen and Katie do their first song when we did the gig at their club - and we were impressed and delighted by what we heard. Really pleased to hear they're doing well. They have taken to folk music like ducks to water. Good on yer!

As FolkieDave said, another group of youngsters to watch out for are 4 Square - oldest is 18, I think. I caught them at Cleckheaton. Great musicians and singers and they built a good rapore with the audience. The percussive piece they did (3 drums and 1 set of feet) was very imaginative.

I'm not going to forget the Young Un's - great 3 part harmony, and the Askew Sisters, the latter who are booked at the Derby Gaol Folk Club this month (Thursday, 16th).

What is also good is that, as mentioned, Helen and Katie run a folk club, as do the Young Un's. The future is certainly looking good and in safe hands.

This year's Saddleworth Folk Festival has a Young Artist concert featuring Young Un's, Askew Sisters and Gene Burton - all of these are really good and well worth discovering.

4Square are brilliant, much better than many older / more established artists, and they have a huge variety of different influences.

There is a band called Tri as well who are quite young (all still at school), who do a lot of Irish music amongst other things.

All of the above have sites on myspace so it's easy to check them out.

Somehow I forgot to mention 4 Square - their set at Dentdale was amazing - and Jim Molyneux was also the percussion finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year! I must admit I'm a bit disappointed by CD though. Do see them live!

there are a lot of fine young performers of folk music out there.

I was impressed by the voice of Peter Yarrow's (P.P&M) daughter Bethany.

There are lots of young folk about but in my opinion they are doing their own thing dancing, playing in sessions etc but not necessarily performing in clubs. I know of a Rapper crawl tonight that will be full of youngsters enjoying good music, good dancing and good company.

Folk at the Oak in Lewes will be featuring some very young musicians next Thursday, November 28th - most of them still in their teens. Dylan Hodgson, Isaac Carroll, Rowan Luis, Aisling Lyle & Joy Paley have already made impressive appearances in local clubs and sessions.
